Eve was doubtful when the serpent spoke to her in the Garden of Eden. The serpent successfully planted doubt in Eve’s mind when he said, “God knows that in the day you eat of the fruit, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God… (Genesis 3:5). The serpent convinced Eve that God is keeping ‘the good things” away from her when the truth is God has given Adam and Eve dominion over the world (Genesis 1:28).
Is God not answering your prayers? Are you tempted to doubt? Please do not be fooled, your circumstance is not the indicator of God’s ignorance over you nor it could be used to measure His goodness and love for you. He has shown it all through the Cross; by giving His only Son Jesus to die on the Cross in exchange for you to be able to live this life free from the slavery of the Satan and to have dominion over your life through His strength, mercy and grace.
So when you tempted to doubt, maybe it is just the right time to say and proclaim that Yes, God is good – all the time.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
